    Terra Veda Organix - Curl Shampoo. Works like a clarifying shampoo and not a moisturizing shampoo.
    Curl serum and gel. Drying on my hair. I need a better more moisturizing leave in.
    Inahsi leave in. Sucks the moisture out of my hair.
    I'm in the market for a leave in. Any suggestions???

    Instant Hit: HiBar Moisturize Shampoo. Has a lot of slip and moisturizes.

    On the fence: HiBar Moisturize Conditioner. Obviously it isn't going to be like using a regular conditioner but idk if there's just a learning curve, not enough used, etc. Was okay.

    Shea butter Blend, soft silky feeling hair


    Miss

    Shea butter Blend, dull , gray looking hair. Never fails. I can only use a shea mix that has oils in it as a sealant on dry hair. Anything else and my hair is weighed down and looks dry because of the shea butter never absorbing, Feels great... looks bad

    Missish: Kinky Curly knot today

    It used to work but the result just isn't what I remember when I was using it around 5 years ago. My hair reacts to it like it has protein.... My hair does better with hair milks

    Tangles and Beyond Pure Mud Mask, I steamed it in because it was so thick and after rinsing out my hair was buttery soft and clean

    Tangles and Beyond Lather sample, Its a body/hair wash with shea butter blend. Used it to wash my hands and it was really nice

    APB Simple Hair Creme, all the ingredients I have a problem with are not in this. Creamy, softening hair creme..simple!

    NLS Irish Moss Styling Cream, creamy, smooth and curl defining


    Misses

    Tangles and Beyond, smh
    NLS Irish Moss Styling Cream, so thick it takes a long time to sink in, so dont go anywhere before hand ,lol

    Jlexllc rice water shampoo. I've had it for about 6 months. Used it today and it made my scalp itch like mad. Poured it out. Done with her shampoos. They burn my eyes.

    Definitely a learning curve. When the strands are thoroughly coated it's quite moisturizing upon rinsing but it's hard to know if you have enough coverage. I guess the only miss with these bars is their weird shape. Still want to try Ethique in the future and see which one I like better.

    Keraveda Crystal Shampoo- leaves hair soft and clean. I’m able to gently detangle while washing.

    Bellebar Henna Gloss
    Bellebar Green Tea Rinse- both of these products are strengthening. The gloss mixed with SSI Papaya DC makes the DC useful. The tea rinse is a great curl refresher.

    Keraveda DC- slippy I love it! It’s perfect after a strengthening treatment. My hair is so soft. I love it more than SSI Marumallow and SSI is my holy grail of moisturizing conditioners.

    Bellebar Onion Garlic oil- I’m seeing less shedding since using it.

    Misses:
    Bellebar price point. I’m only doing sales with them.
    Bellebar smells is not a good esthetic. They could stand to use some essential oils to offset the smell. I love a good herbal smell, but the green tea and oil needs work in the fragrance department. I was able to offset the smell with lemongrass essential oil.

    meh:
    Cream & Coco's DC'ers - I am totally "underwhelmed" by them.:yawn:

    I am so glad I have zero b/ups of these and consider them part of my 1-offs purchases.

    I will be glad when they are done.:ohwell:

    I did like their Spun Sugar Reconstructor, but the DC'ers are overpriced and under preforming.

    I used both the FRW and Rosemary & Peppermint after I cleansed and under my DC'er.

    Next Wash Day, I will use the Rosemary & Peppermint as a final rinse and leave it in. It has a lingering refreshment kinda like Sea Breeze.:cold:

    The Black Tea & Chai is a L-I. And I need to read up on the Guava Leaf because the Label rubbed off.:ohwell:
